What is a Drilled Pier?
To install a drilled pier foundation, a deep, large-diameter hole is filled with a concrete cylinder and reinforced with steel.
Drilled pier foundations are well-suited to high-load-bearing structures, widening structures in congested spaces, and new foundations where a small footprint is desirable.
Our Drilled Pier is a foundation repair method used primarily for frame pier and beam structures, and auxiliary buildings. It is especially helpful in softer soil, but can even be used when the soil contains boulders.
Advantages of Drilled Piers
High load-bearing capacity is the primary advantage of drilled piers. The equipment used is lighter, quieter, and therefore ideal for residential repairs. The base of the pier itself provides the right amount of resistance to bear a great load and uplift it without a lot of ground heaving.
Drilled Piers from Align Foundation Repair provide clients with the following additional advantages:
- Guaranteed long-lasting stability with deep-drilled installation
- Comes with a Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty
- Meets or exceeds even the strictest engineering guidelines
- Steel reinforcement for strength and stability
Drilled Pier Installation
To install a drilled pier foundation, we:
- Stabilize the soil while excavating the material inside the casing to the required depth.
- Put rebar and other support material into the excavated area.
- Install concrete, which is then checked by a supervisor.
Drilled Shaft Equipment
Our foundation repair experts will determine what type of equipment is needed for drilled shaft installation. Drilled shafts generally require earth and rock auger drills to create a hole with a specific diameter.
Grouting, cement, concrete liners, and reaming tools with cutting blades may be necessary, depending on the site conditions, project requirements, and applications.
Drilled Pier Foundation Repair Costs
A drilled pier foundation repair can be surprisingly affordable. The cost will be further reduced when a property needs a maintenance and prevention strategy, rather than a complete overhaul.
At Align Foundation Repair, we have built our reputation on honesty. We’ll let you know when tree removal or a foundation watering routine is an easier, more affordable solution.
No matter what solution is necessary, the first step is to schedule a free, no-obligation assessment to get a professional opinion on the available options before it becomes a more expensive headache down the road.
